The Hub became a very busy place on Wednesday afternoon. We were all invited to a picnic in the Green Room but we had to go on different forms of transport to get there. We took the Runaway train to the seaside. Then a boat and a plane to reach the Red Room. We danced and played instruments to the music but had to look out for the ‘Stop’ and ‘Go’ signs. We had a picnic in the Green Room then the bus took us back to the Yellow Room. Everyone arrived back safely but we can not wait to go on our journey again.
The Blue Class went on a Fairtrade hunt in the courtyard, looking for Fairtrade items. They shopped for Fairtrade ingredients to make their delicious banana and chocolate flapjacks, with help from their P2 buddies.

Dougie came to the Hub on Tuesday 5th February. He visited each class with a huge selection of drums. All the pupils were involved- drumming playing avariety of instruments. The didgeridoo was a big hit.
To celebrate Burn’s day we held a ceilidh on Friday 25th January. Pupils from P3W joined us for the dancing and celebrations.The dances included Mrs Burrell’s Jig, the Meadowpark Reel as well as the Gay Gordon’s and the Prince of Orange. We joined in with the fiddle playing of Mhairi’s Wedding and the Skye Boat Song. Afterwards we had shortbread in the Blue Room.
We hope everyone had a relaxing holiday and all the pupils are looking forward to returning to school on Tuesday 8 January. All three classes will focus on wintry weather for the first two weeks then Jouneys and Transport will provide a context for all our learning.
The next parent’s coffee morning is on Friday 18th January 10.00-11.00 a.m.
We will be looking for volunteers to work on a Sensory story bag as well as practicing some signs. Look forward to seeing you.
We have been busy learning all about India as an Olympic country. We have been on an Indian Journey around The Hub visiting a different market stall in each classroom. We were transported between each stall by Rickshaw or Magic Carpet and when we got there there were exotic fruits to taste, music to listen to, instruments to play and food to eat!
We decided that a visit to the local Indian restaurant in Tranent would be a fitting end to our India topic! Mr Ali was very generous and prepared a grand feast for us to taste lots of different Indian dishes.
He also allowed us into the kitchen to see curries and poppadoms being made. We had great fun! Have a look at the photos below to see what we got up to!
